In May of 2021, Kyrst Hogan was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Instead of throwing in the towel, she decided to wave it in the air for the world to see! The C-Word is a cheeky cabaret journey through her battle, from crazy stories about her recovery from surgery, to musical parodies about the trials of chemo to the baring of her soul and body. It’s a wild ride that hopes to de-mystify the experience of this disease and let us laugh at our imperfections and celebrate our resilience! 

Written & Directed by: Kyrst Hogan (a.k.a. Burgundy Brixx)
